“For a little while they are exalted, and then they are gone; they are brought low and gathered up like all the others” (Job 24:24).
The legendary hubris of our kind is misplaced. Those who seem to be great are unable to maintain the illusion for very long. The pompous, the verbose and the overbearing have their little moment in the sun—and then they must take their place in the dust alongside the ones they oppressed and despised. Am I ignored, overlooked or marginalised by fellow human beings? The egalitarianism of death is near—and after that, judgment.
